Now, if I were to tell you that I have never, or do never, enjoy the delights of gazing upon the female form, I’d either have to admit I was lying or turn in my TomCat ID card. However, even I realize that breasts have a primary purpose, and for that purpose, nothing is better. However, it appears that the Republican Reich wants to make them for ogling only!

They really do want to take us back to the fifties, or even the forties, don't they? When I was born, they were (knowingly0 giving new mothers painkillers which made their breast milk taste bad. I was starving - and not shy about letting the world know about it. My Mom had no choice but to go to bottle feeding. No wonder I have a lifelong allergy to soy.

RESIST AND PERSIST !!!

It figures, doesn't it??
Back in the day when my children were born, we were pinching pennies every day. Mother's milk was flowing from me like Niagara Falls, so of course not only did I breast feed them, but also had that wonderful quality/quiet time with them as newborns. Yes, it's all about the $$, nowadays. Sad.

It fits with the whole Drumpf regime. It's all about the money.

Mother (literally) F*****G imbecile!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!Maybe that was his problem, in those formative months after birth (He was born?), virtually no human contact. Dad probably fed him vinegar…lying alone in his crib, with the bottle propped up, for parents’ convenience. But, not until they bought stocks in vinegar producing companies…it’s all about money!

This is despicable but to be expected with Trump in the White House. Thank goodness the US did finally agree to pass the resolution after the wording was changed slightly.

Some of those knuckle-dragging lucre-grubbers belching propaganda that makes infant formula seem better than Nature's Own probably work for the formula manufacturers.

That's the only way I went for feeding my baby boy. Never ever gave him any type of formula or regular milk ever. All 100% pure Mom's breast milk. It''s the only way for new moms to go. tRump must of been neglected of it, since he's so anti it. Thanks TomCat

Oh, forgot to mention…

I had extra milk after feedings, and so as a neighborhood, all the moms got together and formed a breast milk ‘bank’ for those moms who opted breast milk over formula. I used to joke that I had enough to go around to feed more babies, and so the ‘bank’ worked very well in the trailer park where we lived. Simpler times, yes. But helping others was a fulfilling endeavor, and for the little ones too.

For me, anyways.

This message disturbed me yesterday and today it disturbs me just as much. It’s utterly disgusting that the US actually threatened countries carrying the resolution with punishing trade measures and withdrawal of crucial military aid. This is the World Health Organisation, for frack’s sake! To sell a few dollars more of formula they want poor women, who have little access to clean water, or any water at all, to think that they are doing their best for their babies while they are actually doing them harm or may even kill them, while 40 years of research has shown that with mother milk they both give their babies the most nutritious milk and build up their immune system at the same time. It is beyond ironic that Russia was the one in the end to introduce the measure because the US didn’t dare to threaten them.

This episode has made me angrier than I ever was before and really destroyed any trust I had left in America as a global player. Instead of winning, Drumpf and his cronies have made the country lose it all.

There's that ditch again . . . or is it a deep, plunging "ravine"? I was doing a piece on this using a Newsweek article and this NY Times piece, but you beat me to it.

I was absolutely astonished by the US's actions. But as I thought about it, why should I be astonished? This is the same government that:
1. takes babies and children away from their parents when they migrate to the US without the proper documentation;
2. cuts nutritional programmes for poor kids;
3. makes healthcare unaffordable for millions of people, many of them kids;
4. that talks about human rights as if it is the gold standard when it is not;
5. which has yet to ratify the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child which was signed 20/11/89. Of all UN members, the US is the ONLY country not to have ratified it.

And then to bully other nations and threaten them with trade sanctions etc if they presented the proposal or voted for it . . . unconscionable!!! And it wasn't just Ecuador.

"The showdown over the issue was recounted by more than a dozen participants from several countries, many of whom requested anonymity because they feared retaliation from the United States."

What also made me angry was the US, during NAFTA negotiations, "...pushing for language that would limit the ability of Canada, Mexico and the United States to put warning labels on junk food and sugary beverages, ..." Childhood obesity and type 2 diabetes are increasing among children partially because of sugar and fast food diets. So the Drumpf régime is happy to make kids sick while they take away their healthcare, well at least in the US.

On top of everything else, the US has made overtures to leave the WHO, or at the very least withdraw funding.

This is Drumpf! Is this what his 61 million voters were expecting from their candidate? Oops, I forgot . . . they did not think before they voted!

There are cases when mother's cannot breastfeed and need to rely on formula. My brother was such a case . . . he was allergic to my mother. But those cases are not sufficient to warrant this kind of bull shit!

Resist, Persist, Remove!!!

Silence is Consent!!!

Ah, Joanne, I think they want to go back into the late 1800's, the robber baron days. Before women could vote and Jim Crow was still the way of the country. I don't think there are any limits on how regressive they want us to be. This story is a perfect example of all that is wrong in this country right now. Even as a veteran, a patriot I am not proud of how America is behaving in the world. That means the right will tell me to go back home - well, I AM home, those jack@sses have co-opted it.

The meanness, the smallness, the lengths to which they will go seem unbounded. Yet, let the man holding Donnie's leash enter the picture and the fawning lapdog is back. I just want the investigation, hearings and trial over and this entire administration in jail so we can begin repairing the damage this toddler has done in 18 short months. It feels like forever.

I was willing to put the blame of this entirely on Nestle's and the other big food corps, but decided the vaccine cabal deserved some of the blame - since mother's milk gives some natural immunity, I bet they're afraid they'll loose some business as well.

Seems like they're working on an Ayn Rand society. Fascism; making sure all the largest companies have control and all the money. If we were to actually go back to the '30's or '40's, mothers would never leave the house until their babies were weaned, but at least they'd be healthy. Greed is bringing us down.
